WaterStone Bank shared that the WaterStone Bank Foundation donated more than $800,000 to over 240 local nonprofits in 2019.
The Bank focuses its charitable contributions on four main giving areas: education, women & children, community development and veterans’ initiatives. Nonprofit beneficiaries use the grants to fund a range of programming to promote financial literacy, the health and wellbeing of women and children, services that support our veterans, and events that celebrate our communities.
Recipients of the WaterStone Bank Foundation include the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, Hunger Task Force, the Milwaukee Air & Water Show, Near West Side Partners, Susan G. Komen Wisconsin, the Zoological Society of Milwaukee and many more. In addition, WaterStone Bank annually provides scholarship funds to over 20 local high schools.
“WaterStone Bank strongly believes in giving back to the communities we serve,” said WaterStone Bank President & CEO Doug Gordon. “We are blessed with local schools and non-profit organizations that are doing great things to make our community stronger, and a better place to live.”
WaterStone Bank established the WaterStone Bank Foundation with the Waukesha County Community Foundation in 2002 in order to ensure the bank’s ability to continually give back to the communities in which it serves.
